Hakeem Jeffery’s legal journey took a turbulent path, filled with unexpected twists and turns. His ordeal began with grave accusations of aggravated robbery and robbery stemming from an incident at Parham Supermarket on May 8, 2020.
Initially, Jeffery vehemently denied involvement in the actual robbery but did admit to possessing a firearm.
On that fateful day, Jeffery had rented a vehicle to assist a friend, who had left a firearm in the car to evade suspicion.
He held onto the weapon for several days before transferring it to another acquaintance on May 14, 2020, for safekeeping.
Just four days after his initial arrest, on May 19, Jeffery willingly led the police to the person in possession of the firearm, intending to surrender the weapon.
Unfortunately, it was found in a different location. Consequently, he found himself facing charges related to the robbery, which involved the use of a gun in an attempt to steal $2,200.
In the High Court, Jeffery ultimately admitted solely to the firearm charges.
The prosecution dropped the robbery charges, leading to concurrent sentences of two years and eight months for each charge, with an additional six months deducted for time served in custody.
